South Africa’s minister of employment and labor Thembelani ‘Thulas’ Nxesi admitted to hospital with COVID-19

The South Minister of Employment and Labor, Mr Thembelani ‘Thulas’ Nxesi (MP), was admitted to hospital on Monday night due to Covid-19, the presidency said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Minister tested positive for the coronavirus almost a week ago and has, until last night, been in self-quarantine at home. 

The presidency said his admission to hospital “comes on the advice of his medical doctors, in order for him to have access to better medical attention and proper monitoring.”

Minister Nxesi is the second member of Cabinet to be admitted to hospital after Minister Gwede Mantashe. We wish both Minister Nxesi and Minister Mantashe well and a speedy recovery.
